Wilfred 211 Review- Long Strange Trip

Ryan- "We need to get to a hospital."
Wilfred- "Come on Ryan, Bear doesn't have insurance."
In the famous words of Billy Bob Thornton in Bad Santa: "They can't all be winners, can they?" Wilfred Season 2 has been interesting. It has been thought provoking. It's been down right hilarious. "Questions" bucked the trend and came up flat.

Sure, the half hour had its funny moments, but they were few and far between in comparison to gems like last week's "Honesty" or anything from the beginning of the season.

Wilfred's "we understand each other" in thinking Ryan wanted him to kill Kristen's baby, or the way he subtly used those chopsticks to gracefully eat the vomit off of Ryan's shirt, were more of the exception to rule. The majority of "Questions" was too wrapped up in Ryan's trip to take time to be funny.

The trip easily could have gone somewhere intriguing... but it never really did. We ended with Ryan realizing he was sad, and it may have been because of Amanda. It may have been a culmination of a lot of things. At the end of the day, though, his big realization was that simply that he was sad. It was a bit disappointing.
To read the rest of my review of last night's Wilfred, head over to TV Fanatic.
